Humble beginnings

The Urban Beehive opened its doors in 2013 after discovering a huge gap in the market for beekeepers searching for quality Australian apiary equipment. After we started teaching beekeeping courses, we realised our students need good quality gear, too. The rest is Urban Beehive history! When we outgrew Doug’s garage and needed a proper honey processing set-up, we found a (tiny) factory in Mascot with an upstairs room, and this became the first Urban Beehive store. Those stairs have now been replaced with a ground-level shop in Matraville, with on-site parking and an extensive range of equipment, supplies, books and more.
